This was an excellently written and well presented fanzine which was based in Neasden, London.
Issue 8 featured a colour cover as well as some very interesting interviews with some well established punk artists of the time such as Captain Sensible and Stranglers bassman JJ Burnel. This publication was obviously one of the leading 'underground' reads of the time, and was put together and written by Steve, with some help (according to the credits inside) from Clive & Lawrence.
The UK Subs interview is with Paul Slack, conducted in November 1979, before the Subs flew out to the USA. Although the fanzine is not dated, it must have been published in December 1979 judging from its content.
Number 8 featured a two page interview with Paul Slack

T&M received this lovely e-mail concerning the fanzine...
Just thought I’d drop you a line after discovering my fanzine, Tales of Dayglow, featured on your UK Subs site. I was inspired to do a search after watching a documentary on the movement, on Sky Arts, so seeing it again online was quite a thrill. Thanks for the kind review of issue 8.
